About Us


Sheltering in the lee of the vast volcano known to some as ‘Delamere’s Nose’, and to others as ‘The Sleeping Warrior, lies a stretch of virgin Africa unchanged since the dawn of time. A lilting volcanic landscape that laps the shores of Lake Elementaita, this 48,000-acre private estate has remained as pristine as when it was first founded in 1906, by one of Kenya’s most colourful pioneers, the charismatic Lord Delamere, whose descendants still farm the land.

At its heart, lies the 20,000-acre Soysambu Conservancy, which only opened to the public in 2008, thus allowing access to one of the last great Kenyan safari frontiers.

The Sleeping Warrior Eco Lodge opened its doors in 2012.
